11:03 am
engage in order to accomplish his particular goal. >> officers originally discovered those explosives in basham's home on tuesday. that's when he was arrested. a bomb squad then detonated some of those explosives tuesday night. the man behind one of the most inspirational stories of the london summer olympics is now charged with murder. oscar pistorius faces his first court hearing tomorrow after his girlfriend was found shot to death inside his home this morning. we get the latest now from nbc's rohih catru. >> reporter: the details of precisely what took place in the early hours of this morning are still emerging. but what's known is horrifying and has stunned millions of south africans. oscar pistorius was arrested early this morning here at his luxury home. we're told that there was a shooting incident. by south african law, the authorities are allowed to say very little about what they believe happened.

11:06 am
just proved very difficult. in fact, they've added two tugs, four tugs will be involved in this process. and it's going to take some time as we talked about. once it does make it to the port, passengers will be allowed to leave for the first time since the ship's engine room caught fire losing propulsion. that was sunday. they've been in deplorable conditions as we've talked about with little food and waiting hours and hours to get what little they could as far as food is concerned. little running water. less than two dozen bathrooms for more than 4,000 people on board. that leading to raw sewage and problems with that. no air conditioning. so it's just been a horrific trip for many of the people on board. and a tough wait for those who have gathered here in mobile to pick up their loved ones, close to 100 now here at the terminal and waiting, understanding at this point their wait is going to be a bit longer.
